It was my style to sit on the desk and listen the proffesor. It's the most comfortable style on this earth! :P

Instead of studying exams, we were brave enough to go to parties. ( The next day i was going to have an exam and i passed it :)

After the class, we went shopping with Aynur. ( Right-A classmate from Uni.)

Diğdem (left) and i were moving to our new flat and we were very tired.

A birthday celebration of the girl next to me with red hair.-In Sakarya.
This is a photo from last year. (On the left is me and on the right is my flat mate Diğdem) We were turning back to Istanbul for weekend.

This morning i came to work in a tired and sleepless mood as usual and couldn't find much thing to do urgent and mentioned my undergraduate days for 5 minutes. I think i'm missing my days while i was a university student. No responsibility, no obligation to wake up early for class (actually there were, but it depended on your mood and nothing happened if you missed 3 class; at least you were not fired :)) When you were sick, you could take doctor report not for just 1 day but 3 days at least and proffesors never grumbled.

It was easier to spend your pocket money because it was not you who earns it. You could lie your parents and beg for some more money :) And they feel pity for you and send the money. I was studying in Sakarya University and it was 2 hours far from Istanbul-my hometown- and that's why first years i was staying in student dormitory but some time later i started to having arguments with manage of dormitory and decided to rent a flat with 3 girls in my room.

Then we started to learn what responsibility mean! :P

Bills, kitchen expenses, flat rental and getting along well together... You know sometimes you even can't stand your family member, right? But when you come together 4 different people who don't have any blood relationship with each other, it's different. You shout, you slam the door, you threat...But you see them more often than you see your family and these friends become your family anymore.

Fights, jealousy,misunderstandings...Whatever! I wish i could be a student again.

Working life is too cruel. Noone helps or respects each other. But i remember my undergraduate days full with help while cheating in exams, shoulders when you cry because you break up with your bf ,when you're broke an offer comes from your friends for some money or when you make up and get dressed for a date, friends around you and tell their opinion to feel yourself beautiful and good!
I miss each corner of ex-flat in Sakarya, I miss each stone of its streets, my friends, breakfasts...

Today i wanna share something with you which may sound as something silly for the majority of you ! :)
I always loved languages and it's one of my interest to find out "mmm which language is this" when somebody is speaking near, behind or infront of me :) And it just takes a few seconds to catch it. Since my childhood i've been keen on Greek language and when i hear a Greek song in shopping centres, in cafes or on the radio i stop and give ear to the song because it takes me and wings somewhere else!...

The thing i say is sometimes i confuse Spanish or Portuguese with Greek. It happened to me many times. For example when somebody in the street speaks Spanish very fast, it sounds to me as Greek, i don't know why :) Maybe it's because the speed of the speech, ha? And same happens when the Greek is being spoken in somewhere.

I guess both languages don't have any companion word between each other. Maybe in Greek there are words taken from Latin language but i don't mean the single words. I just mean the sentences or phrases that are homologous. Interesting! :)

Greek can mesure swords with Russian, in my opinion; for having a similar alphabet, right? One of my colleage can speak Russian and she says "i can read Greek but i don't understand even a word" :) And i think it's easier to read Greek with big letter as they're more understandable!

And about Spanish or Porteguese...:) Years ago i met with a guy and i asked him " I love your language, Spanish" and he told me in a blaming way "I'm from Portugal and we have a language named Portuguese" :) I went completely bright red and shy!

But even now when somebody speaks near me, i can't understand the difference between Portuguese and Spanish! But i think they can understand each other, right ? :P

By the way, i've just watched the movie "Vicky Christina Barcelona" and admired Penelope Cruz 1 more time! I think her mother tongue is Spanish and it sounds great when she is fighting with the other characters in the movie!

Have a nice week guys!

Μάθημα 1:
Ένας άνδρας μπαίνει για μπάνιο τη στιγμή
που η γυναίκα του μόλις βγαίνει.
Εκείνη τη στιγμή χτυπά η πόρτα.
Η σύζυγος τυλίγει μια πετσέτα γύρω της
και τρέχει να ανοίξει.
Ανοίγοντας, αντικρίζει το γείτονα.
Πριν αρθρώσει λέξη, ο Γιάννης ο γείτονας
της λέει: «Θα σου δώσω 800 Ευρώ αν αφήσεις
την πετσέτα να πέσει στο πάτωμα.
Αφού το σκέφτηκε για μια στιγμή, η γυναίκα,
αφήνει την πετσέτα και στέκεται ολόγυμνη
μπροστά στο Γιάννη. Μετά από λίγα λεπτά,
ο Γιάννης, βγάζει 800 Ευρώ, της τα δίνει και φεύγει.
Η γυναίκα τυλίγει πάλι την πετσέτα και γυρίζει
στο μπάνιο. Ο σύζυγος τη ρωτά ποιος ήταν
και αυτή του απαντά ότι ήταν ο Γιάννης ο γείτονας.
«Ωραία», λέει ο σύζυγος, «Σου είπε τίποτα
για τα 800 ευρώ που μου χρωστάει;»
Ηθικό Δίδαγμα:

Μάθημα 2:
Ένας παπάς προσφέρθηκε να οδηγήσει
μια καλόγρια με το αυτοκίνητό του.
Μπαίνει η καλόγρια στο αυτοκίνητο και
καθώς κάθεται, ανοίγει το ρούχο της και
αποκαλύπτει τα πόδια της.
Ο παπάς παραλίγο να τρακάρει.
Αφού κέρδισε τον έλεγχο του αυτοκινήτου,
διστακτικά άπλωσε το χέρι του στο γόνατό της.
Η καλόγρια γυρίζει και του λέει:
« Πάτερ θυμάσαι τον ψαλμό 129;»
Ο παπάς δαγκώθηκε. Μετά από λίγο όμως
δεν άντεξε τον πειρασμό και ξαναάπλωσε το χέρι του.
Η καλόγρια επανέλαβε:
«Πάτερ, θυμάσαι τον ψαλμό 129;»
Ο παπάς απολογήθηκε:
«Συγνώμη, αδερφή, αλλά η σάρκα είναι αδύνατη».
Με τα πολλά έφτασαν στη Μονή και η καλόγρια
πήγε στη δουλειά της. Φτάνοντας στην εκκλησία,
ο παπάς τρέχει στο βιβλίο των ψαλμών και
ψάχνει να βρει τον 129. Διαβάζει: «Προχώρα μπροστά
και ψάξε ψηλά, θα βρεις τη δόξα»

Ένας, πωλητής, ένας διοικητικός και ο Μάνατζερ
πήγαιναν για γεύμα, όταν βρίσκουν στο δρόμο
ένα παλιό λυχνάρι. Το τρίβουν και βγαίνει ένα τζίνι.
Το τζίνι λέει: «Θα δώσω στον καθένα σας
από μια επιθυμία». «Εγώ πρώτος, εγώ πρώτος»
πετάγεται ο διοικητικός. «Θέλω να είμαι στις Μπαχάμες,
να οδηγώ ένα
speed-boat χωρίς να έχω καμία έννοια.»
Πουφ, και εξαφανίστηκε. « Εγώ τώρα, εγώ τώρα»
πετάγεται ο πωλητής. «Θέλω να είμαι στη Χαβάη,
ξαπλωμένος σε μια παραλία με την προσωπική μασσέρ μου,
μια ατέλειωτη προμήθεια από Πίνα Κολάδας και
τον έρωτα της ζωής μου». Πουφ, πάει κι αυτός.
«Ο.Κ. είναι η σειρά σου» λέει το τζίνι στον Μάνατζερ.

Ένα κοράκι καθόταν σε ένα δέντρο,
χωρίς να κάνει τίποτα όλη τη μέρα.
Ένας λαγός τον ρωτάει: «Μπορώ να κάτσω
κι εγώ σαν κι εσένα, και να μην κάνω
τίποτα όλη τη μέρα;»
Το κοράκι απαντά: «Φυσικά, γιατί όχι;»
Έτσι λοιπόν κάθεται και ο λαγός στο χώμα
κάτω από το δέντρο και χαλαρώνει.

λέει η γαλοπούλα. «Γιατί δεν τρώς λίγο από
τα απορρίματά μου» προτείνει ο ταύρος
«είναι γεμάτα θρεπτικά συστατικά».
Η γαλοπούλα τρώει λίγη κοπριά και διαπιστώνει
ότι της έδωσε αρκετή ενέργεια για να ανεβεί
στο πρώτο κλαδί του δέντρου.
Την επομένη, αφού έφαγε περισσότερη κοπριά,
κατάφερε να ανεβεί στο δεύτερο κλαδί
του δέντρου. Τελικά την τέταρτη μέρα, αφού
έφαγε μπόλικη κοπριά, κατάφερε να ανέβει
στην κορυφή του δέντρου.
Δεν πέρασε πολλή ώρα όμως και ένας κυνηγός
την εντόπισε και την σκότωσε.
Ηθικό Δίδαγμα:
Τα «σκ...τά» μπορεί να
σε ανεβάσουν στην κορυφή,
αλλά δεν θα σε κρατήσουν εκεί.

A secondary school student asks his dad :

- Dad, our teacher wanted us to search about what does politics mean. Could you tell me what does politics mean?

Dad tries to find an appropriate answer to son's question and says :

-Look dear, i want you to keep the words in your mind which i'm gonna tell you, ok? I am a salary earner, we call this as capitalism , it's your mother who decides how to spend our money and we call this as government . In fact both your mother and i endeavour for you ; you're folk. The nanny who looks after your little brother is working class. And think that your brother is the future . This is enough for now to learn, tomorrow in the breakfast i'm gonna teach you what politics mean.

The son keeps them in his mind and goes to bed. But at midnight he wakes up owing to his brother's cry. When he goes to near him he sees that he's soiled. He goes his mom's room but she sleeps deeply and doesn't wake up. Then he goes to nanny's room and he sees that dad and nanny is making love and don't care about him.

There's nothing to do with him and he goes back to his bed.

Next day in the breakfast, he says tell his dad :

-Dad, i understood what politics mean.

Dad says :

-Really? Tell me what's it?

-Capitalism f*cks working class and by the way the government is sleeping. Nobody cares about folk and the future is in sh*t...

I've just been surprised when i read in E-newspapers that, president of Venezuella " Hugo Chavez" deported Ambassador of Israel and the Embassy employees from Venezuella .

This is a very bravery step even though other Arabian countries, UN and EU make any concrete step against this holocaust.
As you know, Chavez is challenging Imperialism and targets the development of his people and that's why he is loved by public a lot. He's been outstanding embargo of U.S.A. for years and gains people's appreciation. In my personal opinion, it's too bad to see Turkey in this situation. Our ministers are stuck in capitalism while Chavez is using all rights of socialism!

Thank you Chavez, as far as i read newspaper readers' comments, Turkish people strongly support him.

That's the best news i've heard today!!!

Today when i was drinking my coffe outside at my lunch break, i saw a huge group of people walking and protesting something. When i looked at carefully, it was written in the banner that "Bar Association of Istanbul". All advocates wore their barrister's robe and protesting Israel shouting as " Murderer Israel, get away from Palastine"...

It was raining heavily but the group didn't stop their demonstration.

And yesterday night, i came across the same event. My friend and i went to the movie " Transporter 3" and when it finished we were leaving the cinema and we heard the same shouts protesting Israel. Some people were delivering a speech about this blood bath.

I've been in sorrow since a week deep in my heart... I can't stand seeing babies murdered, children lost their families and dreams and old people who pray God to stop this butchery on televisions. And i hate Hamas who uses Palastinien people as a shield to protect themselves.

Those people don't have electricity at their homes, water is limited, they even can't find blankets properly to get warm.

Humanitarian aids pouring from everywhere but those aids, helps don't reach Palastine.

I think this is the "doom" of a nation...

Too bad guys... Too tragic...
But why?
